Information We Collect
Personal Information
If you provide feedback about the Portal the personal information that you provide will be collected, including first and last name, email and organisation. We use this information to help you use the Portal and to capture data for our analysis. If you are a registered account user we will recognise your individual usage of the Portal. The City of Perth (“We” or “Us”) will never disclose your personal information to any third party without your consent, unless required to do so by law.

Portal Usage Information
We will record user visits and log the following information for analysis purposes:

  • The date and time of your visit to the site.
  • The pages accessed and documents downloaded.
  • Time spent on individual pages.
  • Time spent overall on the site.

The information collected will be de-personalised, and no attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities unless required by law, whereby a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect our service provider logs. All data we collect will be stored in Australia.

Cookies

Therefore, you should make your own assessment of the potential risks to the security of your information when making a decision as to whether or not to utilise the Portal.
